What a great middle grade read. You know a middle grade book is above average when you can read it as an adult and still love it. I felt like I could really relate to Alice. My own mother died when I was 13 so I know what it is like to want to find a "replacement mother". I feel like Ms. Naylor did a wonderful job of showing how hard it is to be a tween and think all the crazy thoughts someone that age thinks. I am glad I stumbled upon this series ( I saw one of the later books when Alice is in high school at the library) and feel a little overwhelmed that I have so much catching up to do (1 down, 20 to go!), but so far I can't wait to spend more time with Alice.
